I grew up in the small town of Boise, ID. I was introduced to the concept of movement and body awareness at the young age of 7. It was unconventional considering it was wrestling and motocross racing... but, make a mistake wrestling and you lose, make a mistake on a motorcycle and you may visit the hospital.
Small town kid meets big beautiful world.
up in a small town has a few benefits. One of those benefits is
that wrestling is cool. This was the beginning of my body awareness
and cultivating energy. After years of serious competition, championship
titles and numerous injuries, I had come to learn the body.
Moving on, I
was a pre-med student in college. I eventually moved away from sports and into
adventure. I replaced wrestling with rock climbing and shifted into
the now. Each move became so imperative and presence was a matter of life and death.
college, my zest for adventure led me to ski patrol and furthered
my education of the body. After a brief stint in corporate america,
I was beckoned to LA by the shimmering light of healing. By 2002
my career in energy and bodywork was starting to unfold. This is when the journey
have since studied Swedish massage, CranioSacral Therapy, Thai massage,
many modalities of Deep Tissue work, Yoga, Tai Chi, Kalari and everything in between.
wonder I enjoy yoga so much, it is a combination of strength and
balance and inner awareness. Through the watchful eyes of many
masters I have crafted my teachings to heal and nurture. The path
is long and the journey full of lessons. I now share those ideas with
my friends, students and community.
